By Pedro Tecayehuatl, this delightful set of cup and saucer is handcrafted with time-honored techniques. Blue floral medallions blossom amid twinkling blue stars, while a yellow rim, handle and border provide a delightful contrast.

Talavera is a distinctive art form brought to Mexico by artisans from Talavera de la Reina, Spain. The ceramic artisans of Puebla, Mexico then incorporated Chinese designs, thus creating the blue and oyster-white patterns traditionally associated with Talavera Poblana. Today there are also more 'contemporary' designs that include yellow, green, orange, mauve, black and red.

National and international conventions require that a rigorous procedure be followed in the elaboration of authentic Talavera-style ceramics. Each individual piece will be slightly different, and therefore a unique work of art.
